Having spent so much time at home over the holidays, my attention has fully shifted from pastoral-work to home-work. Truly – ‘leading’ in the context of the home as husband and father is a labor as well as a joy. Setting the spiritual tone at home demands our best efforts and for it we should draw upon the best resources.

Below you’ll find a list of talks on the homefront that I’ve either listened to already or am hoping to give my attention to soon. If you have any other recommendations, please let me know.

CJ Mahaney – A Husband’s Responsibilities and How to Change
John Piper – Fathers Who Give Hope
Voddie Baucham – What He Must be (Marriage by Design)

John Piper – Raising Children who are Confident in God
Voddie Baucham – Getting Your House in Order
